    Did your slime go hard/granular after playing with it for a while?

      Hey, Samantha! We didn't have this problem. Try keeping your slime in an airtight container at room temp to keep it nice and gooey! You could also try adding a little bit of shampoo in the mix to keep it stretchy! Have a great day.

    My slime is way too runny! I'm not sure what is causing it to be like that. Are there different types of PVA thicknesses?

    • Kristian

      Hi there Vanessa, The only thing I can think of which may cause this is the contact solution. It is important that it's not just a saline solution. The chemical in contact lens solution is part of the setting process for the PVA which creates the slime-like consistency. Check the ingredients for boric acid to ensure the slime forms successfully. If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don't hesitate to contact me.
